Mechanical Soup

March 10, 2021
Mechanical Soup

 
MechanicalSoup is a Python library that allows programs to interact with websites. Rather than running a full web browser, it combines the Requests library for HTTP sessions and the BeautifulSoup library for HTML document parsing. This approach consumes fewer resources than a full browser would and does not require the installation of additional external tools. However, it also lacks a Javascript environment; so, sites that require Javascript to function will not work. The MechanicalSoup tutorial presents two examples of automated interactions with websites. In the first example, data is posted to a demo online order form. In the second example, MechanicalSoup logs in to GitHub and views the list of commits against a specified project. Several additional examples are available in the MechanicalSoup GitHub repository. The MechanicalSoup documentation also provides a detailed reference to the API. The FAQ provides some information on use cases for which MechanicalSoup is well suited, along with links to other tools that may be more appropriate for other use cases. MechanicalSoup requires Python to run and can be installed via the Python pip tool.

Data Visualization Society

March 08, 2021
Data Visualization Society

 
Data visualization projects serve many purposes: a creative outlet, an information vessel, and often a combination of the two achieved by distilling complex information into fun, digestible infographics. The Scout Report frequently features top data visualizations; perhaps some of these annotations have sparked readers’ interest in creating their own project. If so, the Data Visualization Society is a great resource. Currently free to join, the membership site is a one-stop-shop for data viz publications, programs, and tools. Plus, there are resources for all experience levels. For example, those new to data visualization may value the Office Hours program (appropriately listed under the Programs tab). Hosted by experienced members, these sessions provide virtual support to those with questions on a specific project or those seeking more general support as they dive into data visualization work. Another wonderful offering is the Fireside Chats series (also under Programs), a Zoom-based meetup covering topics of interest to community members. Recordings of past sessions are also available. Additionally, readers may want to check out the Resources section, which includes a list of relevant books and, for experienced creators with an existing portfolio, a catalog of data visualization awards for which creators can apply.
